Even on the snow slumped days there were little joys glimmering:
Reading Anne of Green Gables again(did you know it's available for free through Project Gutenberg?), one of my favorite books to read in the spring. Do you have a favorite book you like to re-read in the spring, or another time of year?
Listening to the new Death Cab for Cutie album, Kintsugi.
Seeing roots on the cuttings I took from a double impatiens plant last week.
Last year I grew a double impatiens plant in a shady corner of the yard and it bloomed all summer long. This year I plan on filling up bare spots in the shade with plants I've grown from cuttings. They root so quickly and so easily. I prefer doing it in water so I can see the roots and easily keep an eye on everything. If you want to do this, be sure the cuttings not in sun. I accidentally put mine where they got some sun and they looked like they weren't going to make it.
Enjoying some local beer, like New Glarus Brewing Company's Hopster and the harder to find (and quickly sold out) pseudoSue from Toppling Goliath. I love the idea of local, handcrafted beer and how microbreweries, fueled by passion and followed with passion, seem to be growing everywhere.
Wearing the comfy lounge pants I sewed on Sunday from thrifted curtains.
I have leftover fabric that may end up as a top and this piece will probably become a scarf or headband. The project was so quick and I'm kicking myself for not doing it sooner. I used a very simple pattern for pants that was included in a dress and top pattern, nothing I would have looked at twice, but it worked fine. I'm so glad to be on a weekend sewing roll.
Looking forward to the new Star Wars movie and watching the new teaser.
Picking up some violas to pop here and there in the garden (and possibly paint).
Reading Amanda Blake Soule's posts about her time in Bali (here, here and here), especially this story of something very special she brought back with her.
The new Organic Life magazine. I was a little skeptical at first about the transformation of Organic Gardening into Organic Life, but so far I like it. Have you seen it? What do you think?
Planning a project for this weekend. A hint? It involves rope and it seems that everyone is doing it. There might also be another dress in the works, depending on the weather.
What about you? What's been bringing you joy lately?
